Roundup of the new EV's coming to the UK in 2022
Manufacturers are fast-forwarding into the future with lots of new and exciting electric car models arriving in the UK in 2022. Following the government’s pledge to replace fuelled vehicles with EV’s, plug-in vehicles have become a popular alternative in the evolution of automobiles. Over the next year you’re likely to see a growing list of innovative models from some of your favourite manufacturers. Here at EVwired we will be stocking EV charging wires for all of these vehicles upon release. Here’s a sneak peak of the most notable models coming soon …

Audi Q6 e-tron

Co-developed with Porsche, and set to begin production in 2022, the Audi Q6 e-tron will be Audi’s first fully electric SUV. Stylish, futuristic, and much more spacious than the Q4 e-tron, the Q6 provides everything you’d expect from an Audi vehicle. The Q6 e-tron is expected to provide a range of up to 300 miles, making it ideal for longer journeys, as well as short trips. The e-tron’s twin electric motors provide the kind of power you would expect, and with an acceleration speed up to 62mph in 5.7 seconds, and 500bhp, this is certainly a high-performance model to watch out for.

Set to replace BMW’s X1 and confirmed to begin manufacturing in 2022, the BMW iX1 is an entry-level, zero-emission, electric-powered SUV. The iX1 features a more spacious bolder design, as well as a lower price, and a smaller battery compared to the iX3. Forecasts estimate that the iX1 will become one of BMW’s bestselling EV’s. Two versions of BMW’s iX1 will be made available. The e-Drive20 will feature under 200hp, and a single motor. Whereas, the e-Drive30 will contain a twin motor, offering around 250hp. The iX1 will also come with a variety of batteries, with a 38kWh battery providing around 125 miles, targeted towards shorter journeys. View our range of existing BMW charging cables.
